Weekly Photo Challenge : Dialogue

“Dialogue is an engaging conversational exchange.

When it comes to photography, dialogue can be perceived as a consensual interaction between two images.

Placed next to each other, each photograph opens up to meanings that weren’t there when viewed alone.

Each composition reveals the photographer’s specific sensitivity to certain content or visual elements.”

Hmmmm…

This is certainly a new concept in photography for me. I’m finding it rather difficult to comprehend the meaning of photographs “talking” to each other.

I thought about it as I made breakfast. I continued to mull over it as I washed the dishes and did some house work.

Then I thought of the interesting and modern architecture I had seen in New Acton, an inner city suburb we explored this week (another post about this place coming soon).

This is my interpretation of this weeks WP photo challenge.

“LIVE AND LET LIVE”

As I walked past the towering buildings I noticed the sunlight filtering through the last of the Autumn leaves. Then I noticed the sculpture of the tree trunk supporting the weight of the building. The real tree seemed to be bending and sympathising with the entrapment of the sculpture.

Around the corner another sculpture, carved from wood, hovers between the living tree and the metal sculpture.

Do you hear what they are saying?

Then there is the more conventional interpretation of dialogue.

These two are clearly in love...

  4. I love people watching and every one of these photos containing people could have a wonderful caption.

    As far as the ‘image dialogue’ goes, I’m still not sure if I truly understand how it works – but it certainly looks good 😉

    • Like you Dianne, I love people watching and with zoom lens and digital cameras it is another dimension of watching (snooping!!!)…I’ve looked through some of the other entries for “dialogue” and still find it a bit difficult to understand.

  7. I like the tree vs the tree-like support. Individually you notice the form and structure. Side-by-side you understand where the idea for the metal support comes from. Definitely a dialogue.
